Selena Zontos

 Local Santa Cruz artist. I live, work, and create here. Like all artists, art has been a part of my life from the beginning, it simply defines my existence. I have a BFA from San Jose State which enabled me to tap in to the conceptual aspect of art and really opened my eyes. My work has evolved into an Urban style in the process and in the images themselves. I combine a graffiti style and painting techniques I have developed through my experience. The lines are honest and unedited. I just let the image come out the way it was intended. No use over thinking it. When it came to painting on skateboards it just felt like a natural progression. My work is inspired by Santa Cruz; the town, the people, the entire vibe… and skateboarding is something that most of us can relate to in some way.
